    Certain people get involved because they want to see change, but not all. As Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely, and we need look no further than the WH than an example of this. Spanky complains daily, complained on the campaign trail, and still complains, but yet if anyone else complains, he has an issue, as do the rest of the republikkan party.

    • chrislaustin You are right on…He was vicious in his attack too and nobody on his team blinked an eye..or as with graham tripled up on the attacks.The bar is under the floor.

    • @Real American sure he does. You should make a slogan out of it and run yourself LOL. I mean, you did such a good job of showing me. hehe FAKE NEWS! hehe.

    • @Tidbit O boy! You sure showed me with your big brain and facts! Trump Party too much huh? The man has never took a single sip of alcohol before! “10 THOUSAND VERIFIED LIES” Lol… whatever chumpy! hehe. make a slogan out of that, maybe you can convince even more people with your big brain and facts. hehe. Trump already won 2020. hahahaha

    • @Danny P What the Mooch says here is “Fake News”, if you look down in the comments, you will find mine, follow up on the information I provided there. I agree both sides lie, but if you do follow up on ALL the information there you might be surprised.

  3. He’s keeping the narrative away from his involvement with Epstein. It’s working perfectly. All the news media in America are on about racism. He couldn’t care less about that it’s probably playing quite well with a lot of his base.

    • Jeffrey Meade | July 17, 2019 at 5:22 PM | Reply

      Wrong!  The media is keeping the narrative.  Trump isn’t.  Trump is not the media.  The media wants nothing more than to avoid Epstein because they know there are no ties to Trump there.  But there are many to the Clintons.  Furthermore, Trump never said anything “racist”!  Read his tweets.  One has to invent “racism” where there is none.  Not one mention of race.  You people are nuts!

    • @Sand all – you’re right. DJT is directing the convo.

    • @Fabi Grossi You are right. No more Clinton mentions. Wonder why?

    • @Ronnie James Msnbc has old footage of DJT and Epstein partying.

  4. I’m a Republican and Obama and Abraham Lincoln are way better than Trump!

    You want people to go back to their country start by sending your wife Malania she has no voice no purpose no business in the White House.

    • Promethean Allegory | July 17, 2019 at 11:13 PM | Reply

      Yanett Martinez – Her purpose for being in the White House is that she is the first lady and her husband is the freely elected president – duh. Also, Melania has never expressed hatred or unbridled criticism of our country, its citizens, its military and law enforcement personnel, or style of economy and government.

      Unlike the hordes of unknown migrants now entering the country, she legally sought and applied for citizenship. People who love a Venezuela / Soviet style system and hate American institutions really should go some place where they’d be happier and leave the rest of us alone.

      trump not against white immigrants he against black and brown immigrants

    • Promethean Allegory | July 18, 2019 at 10:45 AM | Reply

      Beverly Cromwell — That’s the classic soundbite but it’s meaningless. There is absolutely zero…ZERO evidence that Trump only wants light-skinned immigrant to come to the U.S. These pre-packaged soundbites from the state-worshipping clones at establishment media outlets are ridiculous. Do the Jacobin drones who utter this nonsense really think they can just proclaim something and make it true? Show us the examples where Trump was proclaimed a racist prior to Queen Hillary’s much-deserved loss. The rampant “racism!” charge just sounds stupid at this point.

    • Yanett Martinez | July 18, 2019 at 11:16 AM | Reply

      Everyone including Trump is entitled to freedom of speech. As a fifth generation born in the United Stated of America I have every right as an American so say how dare he president or not say to American citizens to go back to where they came from. They are American citizens period.

  6. Did anyone notice that trump, who never misses one single opportunity to put blame on the Clintons or mention Hillary and her alleged crimes, misses this extraordinary opportunity to drag Clinton in the mud? Normally he would talk nonstop about Clinton being friends with Epstein, he would harp on it daily. But now – complete silence? Not one single word about Clinton and Epstein? I wonder why this is…

  7. Christian Republicans are like unicorns. They don’t exist.

    Vote for Bernie in 2020, the candidate who took 40 yrs of his life to draw up America’s blueprint for everyone of us true Americans of the country, regardless.

      Bernie’s wife Jane, single handedly destroyed Burlington College with a bad land purchase and fraudulent activity. People lost jobs but Jane still earned $200,000. So Bernie and wife practice what they preach about socialism which is “I’ll take every thing away from you and you’ll lose everything but I will still earn all the money. Trump2020

    Trump has amped up the hate like he did with the birther conspiracy. It’s racism no matter how many times they deny it.

      @Inappropriate Mushroom STFU white trash

    • Inappropriate Mushroom Trump thrives on racial chaos. He also has a strong history of racism. For example, in October 1973 the Justice Department filed a civil rights case that accused Donald J. Trump and his father of housing discrimination against African Americans. Trump and his father DID NOT WIN, they settled.
      Trump and his father are on federal documents for violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968, one of the biggest housing discrimination cases of that time.

    Kellyanne Conway said she is sick of this country. She works in our White House and made that statement. Not one Tweet telling her to go back to her country. Why?

  13. Oh my where have you been, why didn’t I know you exist Mr. Mayor Jacob Frey (D) I need to move to Minneapolis whew hot hot hot!

    We all understand what all the issues are that face us, however dealing with the scourge of Trump is now on the table. It must be dealt with and resolved. We can get back to the issues, but not until we have a president who’s a president.

    Why are these smart people still saying ”His goal…” “He’s drawing the line…” “He’s controlling the narrative…”? Who still thinks he’s some kind of political genius or strategic mastermind? It’s clear he’s a vain, doltish, under-educated, bloated-ego puppet, who dutifully takes credit for the moronic & vicious tweets ghost-written by expert thought manipulators, and does & says just what he’s told by his ruthless handlers (e.g., Stephen Miller) who are working to create a repressive, totalitarian, closed police state.

    Democrats and the media stop playing the Playbook wrong all you have to do is play Lindsey Graham’s comments about Trump being a race-baiter a bigot and a liar over and over and over again put the Republicans on defense especially good old Lindsey Graham.

    he’s hiding behind his tweets yelling squirrel again so we just think about his tweets I want to hear more about Epstein please don’t forget about Epstein

    Grow up America! Do something for your country.  Dump the Democratichatred for the USA and the American President and do something positivefor your country.
